Prayer for Today

In a bit of serendipity (see my previous post this morning), here's the today's prayer from asking for guidance from the Grandfather Spirit.

Great Spirit Guide Us
Grandfather, Great Spirit, you have been always,
And before you nothing has been.
There is no one to pray to but you.
The star nations all over the heavens are yours,
And yours are the grasses of the earth.
Grandfather, Great Spirit, fill us with the light.
Teach us to walk the soft earth as relatives to all that live.
Help us, for without you we are nothing.

- Black Elk (1863-1950)
